Washington, DC – The Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) has named Zach Jones as its new General Counsel.

EJCDC is a coalition of stakeholders in the project delivery process that develop and endorse quality contract documents and encourage their use through education and promotion.

Jones is the managing member at Jones Law, PLLC, in Fayetteville, Tenn., and U.S. Army veteran. He is a graduate of Trevecca Nazarene University and University of Memphis, Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and brings nearly two decades of experience to the role.

“EJCDC’s work is vital to the engineering industry, and I’m glad to join the team creating industry-leading contracts that better represent everyone involved in the project delivery process,” Jones said.

EJCDC is a joint project of the three leading engineering trade associations: American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE).

The committee publishes template contracts in engineering, construction, design/build, and procurement. These documents conform to recognized organizational format and have been tested over decades of use and interpreted in courts of various jurisdictions.

EJCDC documents reduce the potential for errors, omissions, redundancies, or conflicts in construction documents.

“The committee’s diverse perspectives and collective expertise provide immense value to the industry,” said ACEC Board Chair W. Arthur Barrett. “The addition of Zach Jones will further boost the committee’s impact.”

EJCDC documents are unique in that they provide for industry-accepted distribution of risk among project participants.
